Insanely delicious little bites of crunchy on the outside, a soft flaky layer, and then all the pumpkin pie goodness on the inside dipped in caramel sauce.

Oh my foodie friends, have I got a treat for you! This is a little mash up recipe that I like to call “Pumpkin Nugget Flavor Bombs”. Insanely delicious little bites of crunchy on the outside, a soft flaky layer, and then all the pumpkin pie goodness on the inside dipped in caramel sauce. What!? Yep, not even joking. If you love pumpkin, you need this in your life.

Think the crunch of a tator tot on the out side. The flakiness of a buttermilk biscuit, and then the yummyness of a pumpkin pie! All in one bite, that’s our little creation and I’m gonna warn you right now, it’s like crack and they can be highly additive!

Another warning… if you share these with friends and family, you will be begged to make them and bring them forever and ever. That’s just how it works when you have something this good, you’ll know what I mean after one bite.

So how did we come up with this, you might ask. Trying to come up with something new to surprise the family for Thanksgiving Day. I like to put one unexpected dish on the table every holiday. Most things on the table must be the same every year, that’s tradition. Me, I like to bring something new to the table, maybe as an appetizer or after dinner treat.

On our search we came across a couple things that sounded really good. First, there was these little Pumpkin Pie Bombs at OMG Chocolate. Then there was a Bread Pudding Bite on Pillsbury.

An idea was born. We kinda took the two ideas and made something new. I didn’t know they were going to taste this amazing.. one bite and I just yelled HOLY WOW or something like that!! *Wink*

I was shocked at the explosion of flavor AND they get fried up like chicken nuggets.. that’s how the name was given Pumpkin Nugget Flavor Bombs!

If you need a recipe for a really good caramel sauce, you can make the sauce that was part of my Salted Caramel Banana Bread Pudding recipe.
